-- Movie Review --

New Harry Potter will touch the hearts of fans

By Roohani Deshpande

Junior Reporter, Youth Journalism International

JABALPUR, Madhya Pradesh, India -- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One, which opens in a world which is dark and dangerous, resulting from the rise of Lord Voldemort, lives up to the high expectations of its fans.

The film is gripping and surprisingly emotional.

The movie follows the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his two best friends seeking "horcruxes" which are Voldemort's secret to immortality, where they must find and destroy the evil which the Dark Lord has left behind - all without the powerful support of their deceased headmaster Albus Dumbledore, and therefore without the slightest idea of how to do so.

The great school of wizardry and witchcraft, Hogwarts, isn't pictured at all; the three are on their own.

As the trio searches for the things which made Voldemort the Dark Lord that he is, they uncover the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows.

The film is an impressive adaptation of the first part of J.K. Rowling's intricate seventh book of the famous Harry Potter series. It follows the book closer than preceding movies in the series -- and that makes it brilliant.

Directed by David Yates, produced by David Heyman and David Barron, the movie stars Radcliffe along with Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry's best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

Yates has definitely gotten better since The Order of the Phoenix, never letting us forget that we are seeing a world at war, where the evil is proving to be too overwhelming for the good.

The story is quite dark and the movie has done justice to it with exceptional camera work - but young children might find it scary!

The lead stars have performed to their best potential and at no point will they disappoint you.

Sadly, Alan Rickman's Professor Snape hardly comes into the picture this time.

But the good part is that the plot holes and loops in the previous films have now been resolved.

The action rolls along, with some impressive special effects.

It is a slight disappointment that the rest of the ride will come next year. But until then, this movie would certainly touch the hearts of all the true Potter fans out there with its truly spectacular finish.
